 Our Spring Fling ...or otherwise known as our Fur Rondy Gathering, was a very nice success. 22 folks met at the Mountain View VFW  and enjoyed chicken sliders, chips, salad and drink! Great time on a nice sunny day. Spent time on updates and planning our picnic, Byers Lake Memorial and Halibut trip. Nest up, the Byers Lake Memorial weekend ... hope to see you there!

Our Veterans Museum  Vietnam display is very nice, we invite all to go by and check it out! They could also use some volunteer help a couple of hours each month at the museum, so think about it! Thanks to Tim, Red and Terry for their volunteer efforts.
